Buy a faster car. Serioulsy man, Honda motors are already amazing at maximizing HP for the size. Any mods you make will reduce the life of the motor or destroy it. Leave it as the engineers intended it. Sell it and use the proceeds and the money you saved not suping it up with junk on a car that is fast from the factory.

You must be a Arab or Republican to waste money on gasoline.

As an owner of an Accord (2000), I will warn you that this car is not made to drive fast. Unless you happen to have an H22 under the hood, you're not going to get much HP without nitrous or a turbo (better choice). You could add a few (10-15) HP with mods such as intakes, exhaust and a header though.

depends on how much is to much you can get a nitrous kit for under $500, but if thats not ur budget then you can try an apex muffler, itll make it sound great and you ll get increased horse power throughout all rpms
